after study the boundaries for quite a number of years i can tell u that with a good coursework mark of about 40+/48 the edexcel grade boundaries will be about:

A*= 62%
A=44%
B=30%
C=14%

some of u maybe shocked at how low these r but i give u my word that this is reality. yes! all u need is 13-14% to get a c!!!!!

but quite rightly so teachers will never actually tell u these my teacher used to tell me if i wanted a* i wud have to 80%- she was lieing though!!!

No, I think the boundries will be higher this year than last, the papers just weren't NEARLY as hard as the 2004 ones. The standard of coursework probably stays the same year after year, so you can probably guess the grade boundries by the level of the exam. I think it's a bit far to predict that they grades are going to be lower than last year (chance would be a fine thing!!!)

Whoever told you that was correct, they were very majorly hard! My hardest exam, even.

The hardest of every GCSE exam was AQA Moduler Higher. My maths teacher said it was more like an A2 Further maths module than a GCSE. I honestly beleive the boundaries will be something like this:

A* = 40%
A = 30%
B = 20%
C = 5%

Hmmm...thats weird, 'cause my friend took modular (I didn't) and she said she found it hard, but was no way in as much shock after taking the regular paper!

I have not seen the regular paper but the moduler was seriously impossible. I done know/havnt talked to anyone who did and found it anything but impossible.

Where do you get your statistics sir?

Whats the point of filling the exam paper up of questions that won't extend your grade? I mean, as soon as you have 40% of it right, it doesn't make any difference if you get anymore if it correct as you've already hit the A*.

GCSE Maths needs urgent reform.

John, why are you worried? You are going to get an A* anyway regardless.

How likely do u think it is that the boundary for an A (NOT AN A*) will be over 60%. I am really hoping the boundary for an A is 60%.

I think the boundary will be around the 60% barrier, but Im happy about that agreeing with everyone about the Edexcel higher maths was easy. I tried some of the AQA past papers as revision and they seemed more challenging. Are the grade boundaries near enough the same for each of the exam boards?

maths edexcel higher was incredibly easy. managed to finish both papers in 40 and 45 mins. none of the questions stumped me, so id say that the grade boundaries will be around:
85% A*
73% A
60% B
45% C

Don't worry, as long as you are not doing Further Maths, you don't require the A* and as long as you are not doing Single Maths, you don't require the A.

But, nevertheless, Im sure youll get it. Most people are feeling negative like that by now! Including me

If an A is 73% I will eat my hat! Last year for AQA it was 57%. Last year for Edexcel it was 45%, although it was very easy. When I came out of the exam, loads of my friends came out of the exam and they had made lots of mistakes on easy questions. Not everyone finishes in 40 minutes. Also, as a nation we are quite poor at maths, hence the boundaries won't be ridiculously high!

Also, today the Sunday Telegraph has revealed that the boundary for a B grade on the OCR board is 17%. PM me for the link!
